Based in upstate NY, RMS is always in the process of branching out into new markets nationwide and will work with you and your staff to gain an understanding of what it takes to reach your circulation goals and formulate a turnkey strategy to deliver the desired results.
Founder Richard Sheill started RMS in 2006 after honing the essential skills and knowledge through years of hands-on experience out in the field; during which time he personally sold more than 20,000 newspaper subscriptions and recruited hundreds of sales reps. Developing and maintaining numerous markets around the country provided a unique insight into what makes a team successful. The efficiency, flexibility, and effectiveness of RMS reflect a real-world awareness of how today’s kiosk programs must constantly adapt and improve in order to keep up with an ever-changing business landscape.
